So, I come back from the barn after cleaning stalls, unloading feed and treating Lacy. She is such a sweet girl again. Followed me to the gate today.
While there, I walked the area I could section off for those two fillies. Got a figure in my head of fence cost to put up, and a place to put a round bale for them (under cover). Could have everything set up in a week. They would have their own water tub, and a 12x12 stall to share.
Got online to look up the guy's number and saw all these posts...
In my head, I know y'all are right, but in my heart I think these girls deserve a chance...
I do not want to risk my existing horses, no. I thought a week at the vet, with shots and worming, etc would be sufficient. My horses (don't know about Lacy) are vaccinated against strangles, which I would think is the most likely risk. That should show up in a week, shouldn't it?
What else could they potentially be carrying? I thought being yearlings, they are at a high risk of picking up stuff, and of course these KP make no effort to protect the horses from anything contagious.
Chivas is immunocompromised, and Lacy also r/t to her current issue with rain rot is also at higher risk.
I would have to make a decision today, to set everything up.
I realize the best thing I can do is quit looking at that site, but I can't seem to stop
